“May the 4th be with you,” is the running joke with Star Wars fans everywhere. But in reality, it’s a special day at the Pacific Science Center, in conjunction with their Star Wars special exhibit. The exhibit will be at the Pacific Science Center until May 8th, but on Wednesday, May 4th, there will be special activities and extended hours. If you come dressed in your favorite Star Wars costume, you’ll receive $2 off the general admission price between 10am – 5pm.
On that day, the 501st Legion, a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization made up of Star Wars fans, will be on hand to take photos with guests.
